Funding options from other policy areas are also of relevance to hydromorphological measures such as the removal of barriers for re-establishing river connectivity which can be funded in various ways such as via the European Fisheries Fund (EFF). The EFF may fund measures relevant to the rehabilitation of inland waters, including spawning grounds and migration routes for migratory species. In some countries, there are specific schemes funding the removal of barriers which serve a specific sector. In Denmark, for instance, many weirs were built for fish farming facilities. Removing a weir at a fish farm means that fish farmers must change their entire water circulating system and at a cost (from flow-through to recirculated systems). To support fish farm weir removal on Danish streams and rivers, a governmental finance support scheme was set up (AMBER, undated).
